From next Monday two other Regions could be forced to reach the Sicily in yellow zone. September has arrived and with it the first bills to pay for summer holidays often characterized by little or no compliance with anti-Covid rules. The decision will be made on Friday 3 September by the minister Roberto Speranza, which has two regions considered in its sights “Special guards”, without neglecting others that have rising numbers but not yet worrying.
To risk the most are in fact the Sardinia and the Calabria. The decree currently in force provides for the return to the yellow zone based on three fundamental parameters: the weekly incidence of new cases (if greater than 50 per 100 thousand inhabitants), the number of beds occupied in Covid departments (critical threshold of 15%) and those employed in intensive care (critical threshold of 10%). According to the latest report from the National Agency for Health Services, Sardinia has already exceeded all parameters except that of the Covid departments (14%): Friday’s bulletin will therefore be decisive for decreeing its passage into the yellow zone.
The same goes for Calabria, which in recent days has recorded worrying data: the number of beds occupied in the medical area has risen to 17%, while those in intensive care have risen to 9%. Who knows that some indications in this sense cannot come from Mario Draghi, who will speak at around 4pm today, Thursday 2 September. The issue of the epidemiological situation will certainly be addressed, which risks worsening again with the resumption of work and school activities.
